Teen Ink and they mean it

Over at the side of this page, under “blogroll, ” you’ll see a link that says “Teen Ink.” You might also have seen a few issues of the print version of Teen Ink, a newpaper-style magazine in the YA section upstairs.

This evening Mrs. Lee asked me if we should subscribe to Teen Ink for good now that we’ve tested it out here these past few months. My opinion is of COURSE we should, because it is possibly the coolest magazine in the YA collection! But I don’t know how many of you have noticed this yet, so here’s me encouraging you to check out this awesomeness.

Teen Ink isn’t an ordinary magazine for teens. It is a magazine written entirely BY teens. Teens just like you, or at least like some of your friends! There’s room in the magazine for any kind of article you can write: news, sports, book-movie-music reviews, true stories, fictional stories, poetry, opinion essays, and more. There’s even teen artwork and photography.

It’s definitely worth reading. But what I’d really love to see is you WRITING for it. Take a chance! Is there an article, short story, review, or work of art you’ve done that you think is pretty good? SHARE IT! Click on the Teen Ink link here, or check out a copy of the magazine from the library to browse for inspiration. Then find the “Submission guidelines” section– follow the directions– and see where your work takes you. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find yourself published….

Notice, the teen materials are not on the second floor.

The Young Adult collection has been moved to the first floor so that it is closer to the Teen Reading Room.  Pay careful attention as I lay it all out for you, as things are not all in one place!

New Fiction, Nonfiction, & Graphic Novels:  Located on the shelves just outside the Teen Reading Room.

Books on CD: Are also located on the shelves just outside the Teen Reading Room.

CDs:  Are located just inside the Teen Reading Room (look to your left when you walk through the door).

Fiction, Nonfiction, Magazines, Graphic Novels, Paperbacks, Paperback Classics, & CliffsNotes: Are all on the first floor near the elevator.  Look for the labels on the end of the shelves.  They will tell you what call numbers are on the shelves.

Have questions?  Ask at the desk outside the Teen Room or at the Circulation Desk.
